This photo competition is to expose the visions of young women of the world they live in. The competition seeks images that make a creative and powerful statement on the theme of ‘21st Century Feminism’. The theme is open to individual interpretation but clear description of the photograph must be included with each entry.



  • 20 final entries will be displayed in a high-profile exhibition to be held opened on 15 October 2010 in Brussels.
  • The exhibition of winning entries may be displayed in various locations across Europe in 2010-2011.
  • The 20 finalist entries will be published in a full-colour brochure which will be widely disseminated among European, national and international policy-makers and EWL partners. This publication will also be available in digital format and published on EWL and partner websites.
  • The judges will select one winning entry, to be displayed on the cover of the brochure.

All valid applications will be judged by a panel of judges on the basis of the following criteria: creativity, originality, composition, technical ability, interpretation of the brief, gender sensitivity, ability to raise awareness on women’s rights in Europe.
